Students love giving things to their teachers… everything from pictures of themselves to drawings of their family vacation. But after a while, teachers often end up with huge collections of things and they’re not sure what to do with them. Here’s one teacher’s idea: a memory book! She uses page protectors and a regular 3 ring notebook.
Some years, she has had space for a bulletin board to display kids’ gifts before adding them to the book, but other years, she hasn’t had one so she just adds them to the book right away. She puts the memory books in her classroom library, where her kids love to look at things she’s saved from years past. What a great idea!
